'd been black a long time. i didn't get my gifts. so i'm a little miffed with the barack obama white house. >> it might be under your pillow, under the christmas tree. >> i have a feeling chris christie might have gotten gifts before i did. i would think if you're trying to market a product, the product being the republican party, probably not a good idea to insult the following demographics you'd like to one day pursue, latinos, african-americans, young people. mitt romney has insulted everyone that the republican party operatives now want to win over. so i think the gift he might want to give his party is the gift of silence. >> let's talk about the rank stupidity of romney and the candidate himself. how did he not know that others would be getting these tapes? this was at a big fund-raiser where he got betrayed in effect by videotape once before. at this point those donors have nothing before in letting ashley and others be involved. >> when your staff sent me ashley's articles, i hadn't seen the remarks yet. when i read them, it made me really angry. it made me feel like this guy who l
, the president of the united states. >> reporter: as president obama sauntered into the east room of the white house for his post-victory news conference, the scandal that's engulfed the highest levels of his national security team still swirled around him. tonight, abc news has learned the identity of the fbi agent who ignited the whole staggering chain of events. fredrik humphreys, a 47-year-old fbi veteran who is active in counterterrorism cases, is friends with tampa socialite jill kelley who turned to him when she got some harassing e-mails. meanwhile, in washington, paula broadwell, petraeus' former mistress, who allegedly sent the e-mails to kelley, remained in hiding at her brother's home. today, the fbi said she illegally had classified material at her home in north carolina, though no charges have been filed. jill kelley also remains at her home in tampa. her access to centcom revoked. this afternoon at the white house, president obama finally weighed in on this scandal, declared that no breach of national security occurred and spoke with sadness of the fall of david petraeus. >> gen
that the president would not be alerted to this fact? >> well, i can't speak for what is going on in the obama white house. bob mueller was my fbi director when i was the attorney general. i suspect at some point this summer bob mueller would have notified the attorney general. i have reason to believe general general petraeus is involved in an a extramarital relationship. now i would have taken that information, which i consider significant to the president quite frankly. i think the president would want to know that information. i think the president wants to know that the person who holds many of nation's secrets is engaged in conduct that reflects poor judgment. also, at the time, we now believe reporting is there was no breach of national security as a result of this relationship. i suspect in the summer we weren't really quite sure of that consequently it might be important for the president to know that in his conversations with david petraeus. for matters of national security i think this would be a reason why the president would want to know that the law enforcement community, that the fbi,
now is gregory craig, former white house counsel to president obama. i find like many people almost inconceivable that the white house would have had no knowledge of an fbi investigation with the director of the cia. tell me why i shouldn't be skeptical. ? >> the fbi conducts many of investigations sometimes the are high profile and sometimes less high profile. this was a less high profile investigation but the fbi reports through the justice department and it does not notify the white house or the president about investigations that are underway. my experience is that we got told about indictments that were going to be coming forward and we were not consulted or informed about investigations underway. this is not just something that happens with a republican attorney general. >> you are talking about one of the top intelligence agencies. you are talking about the chief and over a sex scandal that could potentially and had brought him down. it is an issue whether you want to have political judgements exercised. there are no rules here. no laws here. no conventions here other than un
counterterrorism and counterespionage issues." yet the white house insists president obama didn't know of the affair until after the election. as for the investigation itself, we've got breaking news on that. we are joined by fran townsend, a member of the cia's external advisory board. she has the breaking news. fran, you've been talking to sources, what have you learned about possible legal fallout? >> it's interesting, anderson. what we understand is that paula broadwell had consented to the search of her homes, but after a discussion between her lawyers and the fbi, they decided to get a search warrant. we understand that they are reviewing documents, but based on what they've seen so far, they say that the classified material is, one, not substantial that they have seen and, two, while it may be a technical violation, it's not egregious. as a result of that, the law enforcement official told me they don't expect that there will be a prosecution related to the unauthorized release of classified information, but that ultimately, that's not a decision that the fbi will make. they wil
that president obama's performance among white voters in midwest states like ohio, like wisconsin, like iowa is completely different than it was nationally and substantially different in states measured by the exit poll. >> quickly, i have to get your comments on what's happening between senator john mccain and a few other senators and the president. john mccain was on the "today" show this morning. he was asked, mark, about susan rice and his already -- i guess he's saying he would stand in the way of her being secretary of state. he was asked about condoleezza rice and supporting her during obvious controversial times. let's play that. >> you said opponents of condoleezza rice were expressing sour grapes after an election loss. why is this different? >> because every intelligence agency in the world, including the british, believe that iraq had weapons of mass destruction. that was an entirely different situation. four americans died that didn't have to die. >> so, mark, the double-standard at least as some alleged here, senator mccain does not see it. >> this goes to the whole point that
. norah o'donnell is in new york. there is a lot to talk about after president obama's first white house news conference in eight months. it covered everything from the budget crisis to libya to the david petraeus scandal. >> the president himself said that so much has happened lately, people forget the election was just a week ago. nancy cordes covered the news conference. she is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie, norah and our viewers in the west. the president came to the white house, eager to push his message on the fiscal cliff but also was peppered about his handling of national security, foreign policy. one question in particular got a rise out of him about his u.n. ambassador, susan rice. in his first full press conference since march, president obama was asked about the criticism of u.s. ambassador susan rice, his likely choice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. >> besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> reporter: rice has come under fire from some republicans for initially stating in television interviews that the september at
. but the president notes the investigation is still going on. president obama held his first white house news conference of his new term today. reporters asked him whether investigators should have informed the white house about the scandal before the election. >> what i will say is, is that if, um, it is also possible that had we been told, then you would be sitting here asking a question about why were you interfering in a criminal investigation. >> shepard: the president said he thinks it's best if we just wait to get more information about how all of this unfolded. no question it is complicated so here is a bit of a recap of all the cast members and plot twists in this ongoing well soap opera. last week then cia director david petraeus resigned as we learned that he had been sleeping with his biographer paula broadwell. that affair came out after the fbi started investigating paula broadwell for allegedly sending emails to another woman jill kellily a friend of david petraeus family. curing the fbi investigation, agents uncovered thousands of pages of emails between jill kelley and genera
cars. >>> a war of words waging tonight between the white house and top republicans. president obama bristled and senators, for their criticism of u.n. ambassador rice. five days after the attack in benghazi, libya. rice said it appeared an anti- muslim film sparked protests that got out of hand. the republicans say they don't trust rice and the president is defending her. >> for them to go after the u.n.ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi. and was simply making a presentation on intelligence she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> rice's name has been mentioned as a possible successor to hillary clinton. senator mccain says he will do anything to block her confirmation. >>> the ceos of ten major corporations went to the white house and discussed with the president the looming fiscal cliff. president obama and the ceos talked for about an hour, but specific details were not revealed. on wall street, stocks fell sharply again today. the dow industrials lost 185 points. the nasdaq dropped 37 today. both the nasdaq and dow are now at their lowest le
, the president is on his way to areas hit hard by hurricane sandy more than two weeks ago. president obama took off from the white house within the past hour. he's headed to nye nearby's staten island where he'll meet with first responders. it's the second visit to the destruction zone. he visited with governor chris christie. >>> two power companies are under investigation for how they responded. they received subpoenas from the new york attorney general's office for how they restored power and communicated with customers. the storm left 2 million people in the dark for days. >> we have cloudy skies out there. does that mean rain for us, tom? >> does it? >> no, i don't think so. it's a dry, but cold pattern for the next several days. it's feeling like winter still, looking like autumn. individual trees are gorgeous. here is a japanese maple that is in full autumn color. here we are in mid november. a lot of trees wait until mid november to get peak color. it's a gorgeous tree sent in. you can see the photo that is come in that i post on twitter as well as facebook. follow and like as we look a
counsel to president obama. welcome mr. craig. let me lay the cards on the table, because i find it inconceivable that the white house would have had zero knowledge of an fbi investigation with the director of the cia and tell me why i should not be incredulous. >> you should not be so excited over that issue. the fbi conducts many, many investigations and hundreds of them, and sometimes they are high profile and some not so high profile. this is high profile, but routinely and ordinarily the fbi reports through justice department, and the justice department does not notify the white house tor president about investigations that are under way. my experience is that we got told about indictments that were go ing to be coming forward or about arrests that were going to be made, but we were not consulted or informed about investigations underway. there are a lot of good reasons for that. this is not something that happens with the democratic attorney general, but republican attorney general as well. >> right. let me just jump in, there because it is not any old ordinary investigatio
that the white house made and president obama has it right if there was a criticism to be made, it was in the judgment in retrospect, but certainly, i don't understand impugning the sincerity for doing what ambassador rice is there to do and speaking what she was told to say. >> and someone who obviously operated with president clinton through a very well publicized affair, what do you make of ambassador rice is there to do and speaking what she was told to say. >> and someone who obviously operated with president clinton through a very well publicized affair, what do you make of general petraeus now that we have worked out that this is just about sex and not about secrets being passed or anything else, should he have resigned? >> well, it is his personal decision, and i don't question his decision. i personally don't think that he should have been asked to resign. it is not necessary for him to resign, and i agree with general kimmet that he should look forward to a next chapter in his life. he is a great and courageous man with a personal weakness that many people, men and wo
to end human trafficking. politico says she also has plans to visit the white house. >>> president obama is thinking lincoln. later this evening he'll coast the cast and the crew of of the new movie for a special screening at the white house. and that's all for ron paul. the former presidential contender and long time congressman from texas gave what will likely be his last speech on the house floor. >> our constitution which was intended to limit government power and abuse has failed. the founders in a free society depends on a virtuous and moral people. the current crisis reflects that their concerns were justified. >> it's hard to imagine congress without ron paul. he says he will continue to spread his libertarian message in a series of speeches on college campuses. thomas roberts up next. hey, thomas. >> good morning to you. good morning, everybody. lots of moving parts this morning. the president on the move an arriving in new york city. the next hour, touring storm damage of sandy all around new york. meanwhile back in d.c. the house intel committee is holding a closed door meetin
. >>> another keeping them honest rosht, why was president obama kept in the dark about cia director david petraeus' affair with paula broadwell until after the election. attorney general eric holder knew in late summer of at fair. that information according to the white house was never passed until months later. consider this, the director of the c.i.a. was having an extramarital affair, communicating with his mistress via an unsecure e-mail account and potentially putting national security at risk. obama was asked about the investigation today during the news conference. >> i am withholding judgment. with respect to how the entire process surrounding general petraeus came up. we don't have all of the information yet. but i want to say that i have a lot of confidence generally in the fbi and they have a difficult job. and so i'm going to wait and see. >> the white house says there are protocols, that's the word they used, that must be followed when notifying the white house about the criminal investigation. there is a 2007 memo by then attorney general michael mukasey about notifying the
are female and white and don't like president obama. here is gary tuckman. >> reporter: what do you think of barack obama's first term? >> ain't worth a darn. >> not good at all. >> reporter: a sentiment that was common here during his first run for president. here in rural king county, texas only 4% of them chose him in 2008 the lowest for any county in the country. >> reporter: if you could tell him to do one thing what would you tell him? >> to resign. >> reporter: what advice would you give him for the second term? >> retire. >> reporter: king county at home to barack obama's lowest vote percentage but also the county where he received the lowest total votes. here he received five votes. that is right just five votes. the population is small. but mitt romney winning 139-5 made this the president obama worst showing in the u.s. we went to the girl's basketball game. asked mitt romney voters why there was such distaste with barack obama's presidency? >> i thought he sounded like a d disdictator. >> anytime anything goes wrong, he blames it on bush. now it is his fault. >> in 2009, we sp
to minorities, will. iowa is a pretty white state. romney lost to obama. maine, really white. vermont, really white. rhode island, very white. ohio, 79% white. in fact, carol, 72% electorate who voted were white. so when romney says oh, minorities got gifts, women got gifts, young voters got gifts, mitt, you wanted to give gifts to the rich. the fact of the matter is that these are americans. these were policies. this is a clueless guy who ignored hispanics, ignored black folks and he paid the price. and thank goodness he lost for stupid comments like this. >> can i respond to that, carol, please? >> absolutely. >> here is the deal. roland is right that mitt romney, if he said -- i'm not sure he said he lost exclusively for these reasons. >> that was a quote. >> hold on, roland. >> that was a quote. >> you point out many areas where this wouldn't have been applicable. this was a quote from mitt romney, with regards to young people, for instance, forgiveness of college loan str tr was a big gift, free contraceptives were very big with college age women. anybody now 26 years of age or younger i
his first press conference in front of the white house press corps since march 6th book, and he made a lot of news in doing so. president obama admitted the erroneous statements delivered by ric on five talk shows five days after four americans were killed in an gauzy were at his order, and one of the most defiant tone as we have heard, obama defended rice and invited congress and his critics to come after him instead of her. >> she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that have been provided to her. and senator mccain and grmm and others want to go after somebody , they should go after me. when they go after the u.n. ambassador aparently because they think she is an easy target and have a problem with me. lou: the administrion blamed in gauzy on the flash mobs and cited the video on youtube. it was revealed not only there had been no demonstration, no mob, and no right, but all involved knew that it was a terrorist attack by a group with ties to al qaeda, obviously carried out in a well coordinated, preplan
majority are white, and almost to a person, they don't much like president obama. here is gary tuchman. >> what do you think of barack obama's first term? >> he ain't worth a damn. no good at all. don't agree with anything he's done. >> reporter: it is a sentiment that was also common here during president obama's first run for president. here in rural king county texas, only 4.9% of voters choes obama in 2008. this time, even lower, 3.4%, the lowest for any county in the country. if you could tell barack obama to do one thing, what would you tell him? >> to resign. >> reporter: what advice would you give him for a second term? >> retire. >> reporter: king county, not only the home for barack obama's lowest vote percentage, also the county where he received the lowest total number of votes. nationwide, the president tallied more than 62 million votes, but here in this county, he received 5 votes. that's right. just five votes. king county's population is small, but mitt romney winning 139-5, made this the president's worst showing in the u.s. we went to the girl's basketball game in gu
the white house. talk about what's going on at the white house with regard to style. >> yeah. michelle obama has been in the fashion spotlight for some time now. but with president obama serving another four years and the first daughters are a little bit older, we're definitely going to see more of what they are wearing and paying attention to the designers. >> it's funny because this is election night and this is the family on stage here. and i must say, i love those outfits those girls have on. and i did take notice. >> sasha wore a gorgeous skirt. but they are known for wearing more affordable pieces. and that skirt she wore on election night was worn by malia at a state dinner in 2011. rerare pieces and hand them down. >> we were showing pictures of the obamas out and about. you can see some of the fashion forward thinking we're talking about. one thing i like about it is they are still relatively young. 14 and 11. they are not dressed too grown for their age or too flirty. but it's trendy and age appropriate. how do they capture that and really how can all of us do that? >> yeah. absolu
an opening statement, mr. obama immediately faced questions on how the petraeus scandal affected his white house. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i've seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: and the president refused to pass judgment on the investigation. >> i am withholding judgment on how the entire process surrounding general petraeus came up. >> reporter: the real fireworks came when the president was asked about negative comments from republican senators on the possibility that u.n. ambassador susan rice could become secretary of state. >> we'll do everything to block the nomination within our power as far as susan rice is concerned. >> i don't trust her -- i think she knew better, and if she didn't, she should not be the voice of america rance on "m press" days >> reporter: he referred to rice's appearance on "meet the press" days after the benghazi attack. >> but this is a spontaneous reaction to a video. >> reporter: today, the president was visibly angry. >> if senator john

. tomorrow president obama meets with congressional leaders at the white house to try to hammer out a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. today he's on the move to new york city and moving the needle among progressives. the commander in chief came off more commanding than ever, especially on the issues of taxes and entitlement cuts and earned raves in the process. >> what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folk who is don't need it, which would cost close to a trillion dollars. >> i saw a president with a heightened level of testosterone and maybe a precursor of what he's going to look like the in the next four years. a sort of definite, different kick to his step. a lot of that was missing in the first term, and i found that very interesting, his first public volley eight days later. >> he spoke quickly in that press conference. did you notice? it was the fastest i've ever heard him speak. >> so will the president's base be appeased by this throw down demeanor? or could he be be stonewalled into more compromise on the budget? live from the russell rotunda in washington, d.
as it goes into effect over the next year. with obama safely in the white house for another term, house republicans say they will no longer try to repeal the affordable care act. but they are putting some intense scrutiny on how those changes are taking place. the house ways and means committee is now issuing a subpoena for health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius. they're demanding to know how the agency is using taxpayer money to pay for p.r. and advertising campaigns. health and human services has signed at least two contracts. one of those worth $20 million. the house ways committee says americans deserve to know where their money is going. meanwhile, employer health insurance premiums just saw their lowest increase in the last 15 years. at the beginning of the decade, premiums were going up by 10% to 15% but this year, the increase was just 4%. now the bad news, this does not necessarily mean lower cost for you. employers know when the healthcare reform goes into full effect in 2014, they will have t
, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almost every other leading republican figure is saying the party really needs to look inside itself and change karl rove. in "the wall street journal" today, it's saying the republican party needs to reverse engineer what the obama campaign did in its turnout efforts. senator john cornyn of texas, the head of the se
, or the white house has got to help him with a way out. >> chuck, it's s.e. you heard obama, president obama, yesterday at his press conference talk about the mandate to raise taxes. he basically said that this is what people voted for, and more pem wa people wanted this than voted for me. do you expect that to be the new party mantra, this sort of you asked for it, as opposed to, we're doing this because we think it's good economic policy? because honestly, i've got to say, you asked for it, well, the people also want a balanced budget. they want tax reform. they want a lot of things that aren't probably going to happen any time soon. >> reporter: right. i think he thinks on this specific topic, it was something that was in the exit polls, so it's something tangible that he can latch on to. and the fact is, on the tax issue, raising taxes on those that make over $250,000 has had a majority support for a couple of years. >> yeah. >> reporter: ever since this conversation has started. i think it's really on the specific topic. you know, s.e., if you really wanted to get in that exit poll, it
leader eric cantor. live on capitol hill, jim rosenfield, back to you. >>> thanks, jim. president obama says he's seen no indication that national security has been compromised. he addressed the petraeus scandal for the first time at a white house news conference. the president also went out of his way to praise petraeus and said this country is safer because of the work that he has done. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i've seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had negative impact on our national security. >> democrats and republicans must work together on the impending fiscal cliff. that did not stop him from criticizing the right wing for vowing to block an attempt to -- that did not stop him from criticizing some republicans attempt to stop him from making u.n. ambassador susan rice the next secretary of state. in the meantime, rice attended a u.n. security council meeting tonight on the recent violence in the gaza strip. she said president obama called benjamin netanyahu and reiterated his support for israel's right to defend itself
, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. mostly a waste of time. as mr. obama did what he always does, provided long-winded answers to general questions. the first question from the white house press corps should have been very simple. exactly when were you told about general petraeus, mr. president? and why was this kept secret until after the election? simple. that's the kind of question s no wiggle room. instead, an associated press guy asked an opinion question rather than a fact question. allowing the president to dance. >> do you think that you, as commander and chief, and the american people should have been told that the cia chief was under investigation before the election? >> obviously, there is an ongoing investigation. i don't want to comment on the specifics of the investigation. the fbi has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. and, you know, i'm going to let director muller and others examine those protocols and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i have said before, general petraeus had an extraordinary career. he se
about the angry petitions to the white house asking that certain states be allowed to secede from the union now that president obama has been re-elected. texas was the leader of the pack with one petition counting 70,000 signatures by yesterday afternoon. jon stewart weighed in. >> i think i can best express how i feel about these states and people in the words of the great william wonka. stm. >> stop. don't. come back. [ cheers and applause ] >> at least now i'm beginning to understand why southern states were so hesitant to get rid of the confederate flag. it's like keeping your fat pants after you lose some weight. you're happy for now with the new you, but pretty soon you're going to need those fat pants again! pizza! oh, demino's in staten island. >> then there's the issue of the latino vote which many republicans say they need if they have any hope of winning back the white house. listen to brian fisher, spokesman for conservative american family association they call themselves and you realize why the gop's problems with latinos run very deep. wait until you hear this guy.
